Innovation of Battery Technology and MaterialIBM (International Business Machines) has been a key player in next-generation battery technologies for more than a decade with the creation of the Battery 500 project in 2009. This collaboration consisted of leading automotive manufacturers, National Laboratory Scientists, and major chemical manufacturers. In December of 2019, IBM released its research findings of its next generation battery. In order to move this next-generation battery technology forward from research into commercial development, IBM has joined with battery manufacturer Sidus, automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz and chemical giant Central Glass, to create a one-of-a-kind new lithium battery ecosystem. Based on IBM's revolutionary battery technology, the new-type battery is made of novel and state-of-the-art proprietary materials without any heavy metals. It is not only more environmentally friendly, but also has excellent performance in energy and power density, charging time, energy efficiency, cost, cycle life, flammability, and other aspects.
Accelerated Innovation Fueled by AIResearch team implemented one of IBM’s core strengths, artificial intelligence, to improve the battery performance by identifying safer and higher performance materials. Using machine learning techniques to give researchers access to insights from millions of data points to inform their hypotheses and next steps, allowing researchers to speed up the pace of innovation. To explore solutions to the challenges associated with existing batteries, research team also draws on IBM lab’s strong infrastructure to study how things work on a molecular and atomic level.
Commercialization of LEO Battery TechnologyThe process of moving a new technology from lab research to mass production is often fraught with challenges, such as, material extraction and preparation, production process control, quality, and cost management. With global license from IBM and strategic joint development partnerships with IBM battery ecosystem partners, Sidus Energy is dedicated to continuous advancement of LEO battery technology and laser focused to commercialize it to the world. Based on the proprietary materials and exclusive formulas of LEO battery technology, Sidus Energy provides global customers with superior and diversified products.
